Walk Home With Me; Life's Journey
I walk along the highway of a life time journey;
I started with both my parents and siblings walking side by side with me;
Together we walked in life's wide road;
With spirits high in hope, faith, love and security.
For whatever reasons, I suddenly found my self walking alone;
My parents and siblings went their own ways, to each his own;
I wanted to turn back and trail them;
But I was confused whose road to follow;
For each was trailing a road apart from one another.
I screamed to them to wait for me;
Or to follow the road I take, but they obviously never heard me;
Instead I heard a voice which said;
"Follow your own path and stick to it."
And when I tried once more to look their way;
Before my eyes they just faded away.
I am so lonely and afraid now that I am all alone on this wide and dusty road;
I know not what to do;
I just know that I have to move on;
Hoping that somewhere along the way;
Our paths would meet and we will be together once more.
And so I walk on with a heavy heart;
When I notice that someone else is walking beside me;
He holds my hands as he says "Fear not; I am with you."
In my confusion I welcome him; for is it not that in this journey, two is better than one?
I need his company, or any good company.
He seems to be attentive to my needs;
He provides me food when I am hungry and water to quench my thirst;
He shields me from the cold and from the rain and even from the biting heat of the sun;
He helps me to take another step onward when my legs are tired and weary;
And carry me with his strong arms when I cannot make it on my own;
For all the good things that he does to me;
How can't I be convinced that he is my perfect mate throughout this endless journey?
We continue to walk in this life's pathway;
This time I carry our daughter while he holds our son who walks beside him;
My joy and confidence cannot be contained for having a family of my own walking with me;
The stranger that used to be is now the loving father of my children.
But then life's journey have twists and turns;
Sometimes the road splits in two or more;
And when I turn to look, I find out that one is missing along the way.
We are walking in this journey for a decade more;
Now I realize that It's just my grown up children and I walking in this journey;
And now I walk on with my children by my side;
With hearts full of hope for the bright home ahead;
But once again in life's hi-way; there are always crossroads and twists and turns;
Until I find once again that my company is another stranger;
The stranger who finally walks home with me.
